Murphy Had Not Abused Drugs Or Alcohol, Coroner Says

A final report out today from the Los Angeles Coroner’s office states that late actress Brittany Murphy, 32, was not dangerously thin and had not abused drugs or alcohol, which should quell rumors about her health before her death (but still probably won’t). While the final report states that she had “elevated levels” of Vicodin and drugs from over-the-counter cold medications in her system, it says she had no illegal substances in her body. Earlier this month, pneumonia was cited as the primary cause of death with “multiple drug intoxication and a low-blood count” as contributing factors. [People.com via EW]
